Eagles guard Todd Herremans will undergo surgery to correct a torn biceps in his left arm and will be placed on season-ending injured reserve, an NFL source said Tuesday. Herremans' roster spot will be taken by guard Evan Mathis, who is coming off the injured reserve-designated return list on Wednesday. Matt Tobin, who had been filling in for Mathis at left guard, will start at right guard for Herremans, the source said. Herremans, 32, suffered the biceps injury late in the Cardinals game on Oct. 26. He played with a brace on his arm against the Texans on Sunday but left in the second half after injuring an ankle.

Eagles guard Todd Herremans tore the biceps muscle in his left arm, according to NFL sources, but the right guard will attempt to play Sunday against the Texans even though the injury is often season-ending. Herremans was hurt late in the Cardinals game on Sunday and left for three plays, but he returned for the final plays of the Eagles' last drive and essentially used just his right arm to fend off blockers. He wasn't available after Tuesday's practice - in which he participated - and declined to comment on the report through a team spokesman.

Curt Schilling says the fatigue in his right biceps is no big deal, even at this early stage of the season. "I always get it," the Phillies ace said yesterday. "It's not unusual. I've thrown a lot of big pitches early in the season. " Schilling is averaging a major-league high of 122 pitches per start. He leads the majors with 48 innings pitched. This workload, coupled with the biceps fatigue, is the reason he has agreed to pitch Saturday instead of Friday. Because of Schilling's premier status, the Phillies usually try to keep him on a five-day schedule.

With the ink not even dry on the New York Jets' dreadful season, Rex Ryan fled to the Bahamas only to be photographed lounging poolside at a resort hotel, book in hand, with an interesting tattoo gracing his right biceps. It showed his wife, Michelle, wearing an unmistakably green Jets jersey emblazoned with the unmistakable No. 6 of embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez. And nothing else. The * * *

IN THE '60s, I washed out of pro baseball and took up writing. By the late '60s, I had gained 50 pounds, so I went on an obsessive diet and lost it all. In the '70s I found a gym filled with raucous bodybuilders and began to lift weights. I loved the camaraderie of the place; it reminded me of a baseball clubhouse. I also loved lifting heavy weights, the feeling of strength it gave me, the sense of control over my body, which was quickly becoming more muscular. Arnold Schwarzenegger smiled down on us. There were posters of him on every wall in the gym: in his tiny trunks, flexing his huge biceps, his oiled hair flat to his head, his gap-toothed grin reminding us all that we would never be like him. He was the Babe Ruth of bodybuilding.
